    Petition to boycott ESV: Skyrim

    http://www.vg247.com/2011/08/26/micr...or-skyrim-dlc/

    This blasphemy should not go unpunished.

    PSN users, RPG lovers, do your part and play Dark Souls instead of this garbage. Do not allow yourselves to be suckered into this nonsense, for it is clear that Bethesda are pushovers by Microsoft.

    They've been crapping all over PS3 and Sony for 5 years now it's to take a stand.

    Oh for $#@! sake, are you serious?? 2011 is the $#@!ing golden age of gaming with an unprecedented amount of AAA games raining down on us like a $#@! storm and people are still gonna get their panties in a bunch over a 30 day timed exclusivity deal. If MS need to claw for timed exclusives then let them. I'm buying both of these games. PS3 bleeds sweats and $#@!s exclusive content and we will get this DLC in due time so this is not really necessary IMHO $#@!es.

    Ok I'm a bit drunk, excuse my french...bwahaa

    In truth, I've decided to stop pre-ordering or buying Bethesda games on their release dates. The reason is by the time the DLC is released I normally have beaten the game and the extra content just seems superfluous. I know if the DLC was available prior to purchasing or at the point of purchase I would play it.

    Which is why I always wait, especially incase the game has any major game breaking bugs that have slipped through that need fixing within 1 or 2 weeks of release.

    Dark Souls and Skyrim are my two must have games no matter what. No way I'm going to boycott one of them because of a 30 day DLC exclusive. We will still get it AND Skyrim can easily take 300-400 hours of play time, so I doubt most of us will even care about the DLC for a few months anyways.

    What really upsets me on the other end, is DLC is being released at the same time as the game. That always kind of makes me feel like I'm only buying 90% of the game while devs expect us to buy the other 10% separate.

    I used to be pissed off but I realized I don't buy DLC anyway...so doesn't matter to me. I'm still getting this game.

    People need to stop being pussies honestly.

    This is a little extreme, no? It's just DLC. It means even less considering that you probably won't even beat the game by the time the DLC releases. Not to mention the fact that Bethesda's recent DLC packs in other RPGs like Fallout 3 haven't really been anything too special. And on top of that its only 30 days. I think you will survive.

    Its not just DLC its an actual expansion pack, all the expansions in Fallout 3 gave me another 50+ hours worth of gameplay. Its not like 90% of other DLC which is actually on the disc to begin with anyway.

    Figured, it'd be funny if they were getting their panties in the bunch for little $#@!.

    Anyway, it's also just 30 days and not like 6 months wait like it used to be.

    I'm with you brother, we'll stand together!

    I've cancelled my pre-order, thrown out my X360 and tortured a kitten.

    Ready and waiting to be taken into Sony's bosom.

    this is just utter bull$#@!, you have other games. I would like to see a poll on what people really think about this stupid exclulsive DLC. There's too many hot games(Uncharted 3, GoW 3, BF 3, MW 3, Rage, Splinter cell HD,MGS HD, God of war psp remake, batman:AC, assassin creed) coming out in the next 3 months to worry bout this DLC.

    Like waiting for the Oblivion GOTY with the game breaking Vampirism bug they never bothered to fix. I wouldn't wait.

    Timed exclusives for content mean only one thing they paid extra for it and its pointless as for the DLC why isnt it in the game already thats what I only wanna know, for you know the DLC maybe crap anyway and you might not need to buy the dam thing.

    Also 30 days may give extra time to work any crippling bugs the 360 users get before us.

    I wasn't going to buy the game upon release anyways. Like most of their games, I'll wait until it's fixed of most bugs.

    This move by MS and Bethesda should't surprise anyone. It's just business as usual. This is one of the reasons it's good to be a dual console owner. Smart move by ms IMO to get this DLC first.

    I wonder who will be first to boycott the Bioshock Infinity game for giving the PS3 exclusive access to including the first Bioshock with the game purchase!
